Adendorff to start against Stormers
TEAM ANNOUNCEMENT: Flank Shaun Adendorff will make a first start for the Bulls when they take on the Stormers in Pretoria on Saturday - their final Super Rugby league game of the season.
Adendorff has played off the bench twice and will take over from Ruan Steenkamp, with the latter swapping places with Adendorff and move to the bench.
This swap is one of two changes in the pack that came up short against the Southern Kings last weekend.
In the other, Pierre Schoeman earns a start at loosehead, with Lizo Gqoboka out with a niggle.
The bench will see the return of Piet van Zyl as back-up scrumhalf and Trevor Nyakane as back-up prop.
